I have a 1954 Ford NAA that still has salt in the tires. My Father bought it in 1954, original rim, never had to fix the rims because of salt rusting out the tire. Yes, there are better ways of doing it now, but I still run calcium chloride in my tires. Put a tube in, no matter what. A tubeless tire is useless in the woods. I have tubes in both of my front tires. As soon as I have trouble, a tube goes in.
I prefer the weight in the tires, not hanging out behind me. A weight box would be useless for me. I would have to take off my 3 pt winch to use it.
My FIL had a small JD. Took me years to convince him to put weight inside the tires. What do I know, been around tractors my whole life.  ::)  After he got rid of the weight box, tractor was much more stable.
